Topic: The Impact of Statutes on Civil Litigation

Statutes have a significant impact on tort litigation. There may be express remedies for statutory breaches, as in cases involving Civil Damage Act claims, or remedies may be implied for statutory violations. Most commonly, however, a statutory violation will provide a basis that violation of a statute is negligence per se. This discussion will focus on the issues involved in using statutes in civil litigation.

Speaker: Mike Steenson, Bell Distinguished Professor of Law at Mitchell Hamline School of Law
